Hi, I'm having some problems getting my X-axis and Y-axis jogging properly. The 3 KL 4030 drivers will all work for the Z-axis, but not for the X or Y. I'm using KL 4030 driver, C10 BOB, and Mach3 software.
Here is what my machine is doing. When I jog the X or Y axis in one direction, the axis moves back and forth (side to side) only about 1mm.
I believe that I'm calculating the Mach3 steps per 1mm movement correct, but maybe someone could verify them for me. The X and Y axis are belt driven with 1 motor revolution per 44mm which equals 0.023 revs/mm. I have the drivers half-stepping so the Mach3 steps per motor revolution is 400 steps/motor rev. So the Mach3 steps per unit (1mm) is equal to the steps/motor rev times the motor revs/mm which is 0.023*400=9.52 Mach3 steps per 1mm movement (seems low??).
I also tried the corresponding steps/mm for 1/8 and 1/32 stepping, but still had the same back and forth movement. Do these seem like a low numbers for steps/mm? How much effect would changing the velocity or acceleration cause? Thanks for the help. John.
I figured this one out. Faulty motors or incorrect wiring. I swapped out cnc tables/motors and get everything working right away!
